The Gulf Fishing Industry

The Gulf Coast's fishing industry has seen a pause in its post-hurricane recovery.

Officials say federal money that was promised to the industry has not come through.

Fishing communities in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are rushing to get their boats repaired and back in the water. Many fishermen are hoping to finish in time for the spring shrimp season.

Some in the industry have been told that broader problems must first be addressed.

Out of more than $80 billion spent on storm relief since last August, none has gone directly to the fishing industry.
